No. 8 - Duet - June and Dudley - "They didn't believe me."

MIDI File

Dudley: Got the cutest little way,
Like to watch you all the day.
And it certainly seems fine
Just to think that you'll be mine.
When I see your pretty smile,
Makes the living worth the while,
So I've got to run around
Telling people what I've found.
And when I told them
How beautiful you are,
They didn't believe me!
They didn't believe me!
Your lips, your eyes, your cheeks, your hair
Are in a class beyond compare.
You're the loveliest girl that one could see!
And when I tell them — 
And I'm certainly goin' to tell them
That I'm the man whose wife one day you'll be,
They'll never believe me — 
They'll never believe me — 
That from this great big world you've chosen me.
   
June: Don't know how it happen'd quite,
May have been the summer night,
May have been —  well, who can say.
Things just happen anyway.
All I know is I said "Yes,"
Hesitating more or less
And you kiss'd me where I stood,
Just like any fellow would.
And when I told them
How wonderful you are,
They didn't believe me!
They didn't believe me!
Your lips, your eyes, your curly hair
Are in a class beyond compare.
You're the loveliest thing that one could see.
And when I tell them — 
And I'm certainly goin' to tell them
That I'm the girl whose boy one day you'll be,
They'll never believe me — 
They'll never believe me — 
That from this great big world you've chosen me.
